Other dogs belonging to the couple were also affected.

The incident happened overnight from 8pm last Wednesday to 9am last Thursday and a quad bike and Stihl chainsaw were stolen, as well as a black Stanley toolbox with a new angle grinder, sockets, screwdrivers and spanners inside it.

A new yellow ATV knapsack (which fits on the back of a quad for spraying weeds) was also stolen as well as 1lb hammer with green paint on the metal part was taken - and extensive damage was caused at the property.

Officers believe the suspects and their dog or dogs will have sustained multiple dog bites during the incident, and are asking people to contact police if they believe they know who was responsible.
